Kohla Race Roll

Brand: Kohla
Model: Evolution Race
Shipping: Free over $50*
Availability: Out For Season
Price: $0.24

The 62mm race skin from Kohla is the same 100% mohair forumla used by Fischer, Hagan, and recently La Sportiva for their race skis. But now you can buy it off the roll with tacky Kohla colors. Since you’ll be advertising for the Austrian company during transitions, they offer the material at a great price. That’s not true but was fun to write. The skins are known for their grip and the glide ain’t so bad either. Very tacky glue makes them great for use in cold races or as backups. Purchase by the centimeter to get exactly the amount you need. Type the number of centimeters in the quantity field.

Skins are pretty hard to mess up so I'm not sure how much a star rating really helps when making a decision. 4 stars because they work and they are cheap, but if I were buying a new pair I'd probably pick a different skin. The one caveat, the note in the product description saying that the glue is tacky is not a joke. On a 15 degree training day these skins got stuck to themselves on the first rip and I literally had to go gloves off for about 30 seconds to pry the skins apart. Great for cold weather or fresh snow that might otherwise cause skin issues. Upside, you'll likely not have to re-glue them for a longer stretch than other skins.

Question from Mike
 
I purchased these kohla skins new this season. I'm in a race Saturday and temps are supposed to be 41 degrees. Will these be fine in warm temps or Will I need some glide wax or any other product?

Hi Mike, the skins work fine in warmer temps. If you go between wet and dry snow there can be some glomming with any skin, so you might want to wax them beforehand.

Hey Mike. Yikes, that's hot for Feburary! With temps that high you have a pretty good chance of snow buildup on the skins just because the snow temperature will vary a lot. Any good wax appropriate for the temperature will do! I'd use the fastest wax you can find for the skins!

Answer from Mike R
 
Would you reccommend your Colltex stick wax or countour liquid?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mike, the liquid is a bit faster and somewhat longer lasting, but also annoying to carry; best for pre-treating before you leave. The blocks are lighter and easier to stash and use in a pinch.
